Tried to season my new elite series and couldn't get the wood chunks to produce smoke. Added a pan of ice and raised the temp. to 250 and it smoked for approx. 1 hr. When lowered the temp to 225 it quit.
Today I am trying to cook a tri-tip. at 200.The smoke lasted for approx 1.45 hrs and quit. There are two light weight charcoal pieces remaining.
Is this the performance I should expect? the wood pieces are the ones supplied by CS.
Thanks for your help.
